Review
What are we developing scientifically and why? Do we know if we are spiritually present when we make such personal and collective decisions? How can we keep our humility, self-awareness, and a measure of morality where research and development advancements are concerned? The Dalai Lama asks these human value–based questions as he ponders the meeting point of science and spirituality, especially as it relates to quality of life in scientific endeavors. Along the way, he shares his own experiences with science, exploring Buddhist "emptiness," the theories of relativity and evolution, the role of consciousness (referencing leading scientists and Buddhist figures), the "beginningless, endless" Buddhist concept, and the West's big bang theory. Ultimately, he finds, the key to honoring the preciousness of life and balance in nature is vigilance in staying compassionately motivated. This, he holds, is our true purpose as sentient beings on Earth. Though the Dalai Lama aims to reach a wide audience and offers a fair, nicely written, and thoughtful treatise, the subject matter will primarily appeal to spiritual types and to altruistic, ethical physicists and biologists. Recommended for psychology and special interest collections in medical and larger public libraries.
